I've had a busy few weeks, working on the website which is now online (yeay!) and making things for Etsy and Folksy, like these notebook covers:

and purse:

I also went to the Grand Christmas Fair at Nettlecombe Court, which was great - even got my Christmas shopping started! Tried the best ever Christmas pudding by Plum Duff and Stuff, and saw loads of other beautiful handcrafted gifts.

One of the best things about autumn is going for a long walk on a crisp, clear day and then getting home and getting cosy inside! I've been busy making things for Etsy and Folksy, including some lavender mice with flowers harvested from the garden, and shell necklaces with shells recently collected from a trip to Devon.

I'm also really excited about visiting the MISI makers event in Bristol on the 7th November - this Saturday! see for more details.

Just for a bit of colour - a local pigeon in our little garden!

My first post!

Hi everyone,

I am a bit new to all of this, so bear with me while I figure it all out! Firstly I will introduce myself - I am Sacha, I live near Bristol and have recently obtained a Phd in Botany. My day job at the moment is a post-doctoral researcher, and in my spare time I enjoy creating things, being outside and riding my beautiful horse. All these things inspire me and as I have such a rubbish memory I recently started keeping a diary of all the things that I have enjoyed or discovered. These range from recipes, gardening tips, weird and wonderful plants, artists on Etsy and Folksy, places to visit, projects and lots more! I have found this very satifying to write and to go back and look through. I have shops on Etsy and Folksy, where I sell some handmade items (jewellery, paintings, textiles) and I am trying to put together a website. The idea of starting a blog came to me from those I have read from other sellers, and I would like to try and make my blog an on-line version of my 'diary', in case anyone would also enjoy things that I have.
